is it fake, or are you upset that not everyone is listed

Still, the U.S. is one of the few places left where advisers are actively promoting accounts that will remain secret from overseas authorities
The U.S. was determined to put an end to such practices. That led to a 2010 law, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, or Fatca, that requires financial firms to disclose foreign accounts held by U.S. citizens and report them to the IRS or face steep penalties. Inspired by Fatca, the OECD drew up even stiffer standards to help other countries ferret out tax dodgers. Since 2014, 97 jurisdictions have agreed to impose new disclosure requirements for bank accounts, trusts, and some other investments held by international customers. Of the nations the OECD asked to sign on, only a handful have declined: Bahrain, Nauru, Vanuatu—and the United States.

If no prominent Americans are on that list, I would find it suspicious for sure. At the very least scrubbed by intelligence agencies. At the most, largely put together by those agencies, though probably with entirely factual data. In fact, this Panamanian law firm is very likely a CIA ASSET TO BEGIN WITH.
Mr. Mossack was a nazi. I wonder if he is linked to Operation Paperclip.
